Project Description

Conceptually illustrate Synlogic’s engineered E.coli platform for therapeutic applications, highlighting genetic modifications with a graphical representation of the E.coli plasmid, and conveying a sense of heroism and high technology. E. coli flagella were limited to just “tails” per client request, to avoid bacteria being perceived as “creepy”.
